Pros

Amazing perks and smart people working hard and helping everyone to learn together. Lots of opportunity for growth.

Cons

Sometimes it was hard to communicate across teams. Since people are moving so fast, it's hard to know who is working on what and who to contact.

    I have been working at Facebook full-time

    Pros

    Great brand name, if you need one on your resume

    Cons

    -Highly politicized working environment means 50% of your time on the job is spent posturing.
    -Lots of opportunity to move laterally; not a lot of room to grow.
    -Dramatic pay imbalance seems unfair. Engineers sometimes get 40x the equity compensation as non-engineer hires.
    -Investment-banker hours without investment-banker pay.

    Advice to Management

    Be more involved in managing departments other than engineering.
